Family, friends, and gratitude are some of the words that come to mind at this time of year. Families of all kinds gather to reflect on the year and share hopes for the future. Whether your family is big or small, or comprised of coworkers or friends, your group deserves to celebrate in a special way. At Disney, we create memorable experiences for groups of all sizes. From intimate dinners to grand celebrations, our team is prepared with state-of-the-art technology, immersive décor, and themed culinary masterpieces.

A popular event theme is based on the hit animated film Encanto. Based on the values of family, loyalty, and individuality, this is the perfect theme for a close-knit group or those who want to bond as a unit!

Begin your evening with a grand welcome into the event space. Inspired by the butterflies in Encanto, which signify change and good fortune, a confetti drop signals to your guests that it is time to celebrate! Plus, it makes for beautiful photos and videos.

Beyond the butterfly confetti release lies an enchanting backdrop of the magical Madrigal family home. Perfect for photo opportunities, this backdrop provides a pop of color and sets the scene for the evening. Surprise your attendees with a private character greeting from Mirabel during your celebration. Additionally, you may choose to include a professional Disney photographer to capture these special moments at your event.

Adorning the tablescape is a centerpiece inspired by the Miracle Candle that blessed the Madrigal family with their powers. This piece also ties in with the butterfly theme throughout the evening, and stunning floral that elevates the space.
